Sutin, Thayer & Browne has been recognized by the American Bar Association’s Health Law Section in this year’s Regional Law Firm Recognition List. The Sutin firm ranked eighth in the West region, an area comprising Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
“We are honored to once again be included among the top healthcare law firms in the nation,” says David H. Johnson, the senior-most member of the firm’s healthcare law practice. “It is validation of Sutin’s ongoing commitment to developing comprehensive, innovative solutions to our clients in the healthcare industry.”
Almost a dozen attorneys work in the Sutin healthcare law team; four of these (Johnson, Deborah E. Mann, Stefan R. Chacon, and Jesse D. Hale) focus almost exclusively in healthcare law, serving as the practice’s core. Collectively, they have more than six decades of experience representing healthcare clients and have been recognized for their expertise by their peers and clients alike. Johnson was named Albuquerque Healthcare Lawyer of the Year by Best Lawyers in America in 2015 and 2020. More recently, Mann earned the same honor for 2021, being named Albuquerque’s Healthcare Lawyer of the Year. In early 2020, Chacon was re-appointed Chair of the Healthcare Litigation and Risk Management Interest Group, the largest interest group within the American Bar Association Health Law Section. Also earlier this year, Hale earned re-appointment as the Vice Chair of the Membership Committee of the ABA’s Health Law Section.
